Maxon console concept (Backup from The verge post)


Hello Vergers 🙂

Today I will be showing something that I thought when I mixed the best of Console, Mobile/Tablet gaming aspects with some multimedia features and other things… (Note: This is not aimed to be real, but rather a concept to show off what Next-Gen Could be)

I really wanted to do this because it seemed to me that majority of people are not liking what Next-Gen looks like so far..

The Logo

But what’s important is the console’s look and features (Especially the controller)

Console features (Controller):

  • Anti-reflective and semi-glossy piano black skin
  • Packs Bluetooth, NFC (It has it all over the case of the controller for easy opt-in and out of the console)
  • 2 Cameras (8MP Touchpad side with flash and 2MP Touchscreen side)
  • Support for non-tag and tag AR camera mode (NFC and bluetooth also enhances this feature, for example, using a large screen or musical fountains for displaying your character and interacting with it)
  • 4 Physical Buttons (2 Around the Touchpad side Camera, Home/sleep, hold both of them to shutdown/power on) – R and LT
  • There are no Physical buttons on the front of the controller, watermark logo on the back.

Features of the platform:

  • Cross-platform multiplayer/Companion app for pocket, mobile/tablet and computers with Maxon console
  • Buy one game on any platform/console, get it on any other owned device/console (if you are on the same account, family accounts are capable of doing this expect it includes it in one library of family accounts)
  • Computer graphical configuration settings that can be customized are also on Console/Platform Apps
  • Universal better than Playstation Home/Miis/Xbox Avatars game and avatar system, UniPlanet
  • Indie/user-created games can be submitted and rated on by users and have own forums to improve and multiple versions unfinished to try before the final game comes
  • Crowd sourcing games and features list to be added
  • One thing that is on OYUA and not on Maxon is that its NOT hackable easily
  • Console and platform to have fluid and universal API and support for multiple languages of programming to use such as C++, HTML, Java, Ruby and more…
  • Many engines support (CryEngine, Unity, and more)
  • Easy and advanced modes of making a game or porting it to make it work on Maxon, auto optimizations of game to be on other platforms Maxon Apps supports (or manual as another option)
  • Console to cost $299/$399
  • Unique web browsing features that can be looked as if the web is a native app (Website is being displayed as native app with native features)
  • Platform App universal on Mobiles, Tablets, Computers that support it. (Used as Companion app, as a controller, as a place to play games, AR support and UniPlanet)

Here you go, you can discuss this, and don’t think that I’m advertising it (this is my idea that I wanted to share to every Verger here)
